CBHS Annual Fund

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund goes directly to the operating budget at CBHS. It allows us to maintain a tuition that is inclusive to all socioeconomic levels, which continues our mission of promoting religious, ethnic, and economic diversity.  Education occurs inside and outside the walls of CBHS, and the Annual Fund acts as a bridge between what it cost to educate a Brother’s Boy and what tuition actually provides.  The Annual Fund also supports the various activities, arts, and athletics that our Brothers' Boys participate in daily.

 

Tuition:                                                                                     $12,750

Fees:                                                                                          $1,930

Total Cost of Attendance:                                         $14,680

Annual Fund Support:                                                    $1,960

Total Cost of Education:                                              $16,640

 

2016-2017 Annual Fund Goals

Annual Fund FAQs

What does the Annual Fund support?

-The Annual Fund bridges the "gap" between what tuition and fees cover and the "Brothers' Boy Experience".  The Annual Fund also supports all of our arts, extracurricular activities, and athletic programs.

When will I be asked to give and when do I need to send my gift?

-The Annual Fund operates during the CBHS fiscal year, which is July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016.  We ask for your support at any time you feel that is most appropriate for you.  

I’m a parent so why are you asking me to give when I pay tuition?

-Due to the "gap" that exists between what tuition and fees cover and what it truly costs to be a Brothers' Boy, we ask our parents to support the Annual Fund in an effort to bridge that "gap".  We understand that families are blessed to give at different levels, and our parents support enables us to provide a complete "Brothers' Boy Experience" inside and outside the walls of CBHS.  

As an alumni, how will I know my gift is going to where I want?

-The Annual Fund serves as the fundraising arm for all of our arts, extracurricular activities, and athletic programs.  Alumni, parents, family, and friends can make a gift to the Annual Fund and leave it undesignated to be placed to the greatest area of need.  Gifts can also be designated to any of the programs our Brothers' Boys are engaged in.  This allows our supporters to know exactly where their gift is making an impact!

Why not just raise tuition?

In continuing the mission of CBHS and St. John Baptist De Lasalle, the tuition is set to allow for individuals of all socio-economic background the opportunity to receive an education at CBHS.  

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Yes, gifts to CBHS are 100% tax-deductible.  CBHS Wave Club members are asked to consult their tax adviser in determining which portion of their CBHS Wave Club donation is tax-deductible.  ***This is for individuals who received sport season or all-season passes.***

How much should we give?

-We ask that you give what in appropriate for you.  We understand that everyone is blessed to give at certain levels, but we do ask that everyone supports and aids us in our mission.  Every gift matters and no gift is too small!!

Who can take advantage of matching gifts?

-If you are interested in taking advantage of matching gifts, please contact your employer's human resources department to see if CBHS is eligible for matching gifts.

Can we make a non-cash contribution to the Annual Fund?
